What Makes A Winner?

Wales International Championships 2019

We headed to Wales with a small team for our first competition under our new club name ‘Enso Taekwondo Academy’.

Whilst the results didn’t land in our favor this time, all players did come home with bronze medal wins. Yes, they were disappointed to not get gold but it got me thinking- what is it that makes a winner?

A winner isn’t simply a collection of medals or trophy’s. A winner is someone who can take the losses and learn from them. Someone that works hard and gives their best to everything they do. Being a winner is an attitude, one of perseverance, of overcoming adversity and not giving up on your dreams. Winners are not people who never fail, but people who never quit!

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
